Revd Prof Jeremy Duff “Today is the day – for everyone! Growing Church in Luke and Acts” (live lecture)
November 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
In Jesus’ lifetime, people met him face to face, and he gathered around him a community of Jewish men and women who thought he was the one to redeem Israel. Today we use the language of ‘meeting Jesus’ and of growing the church (community), but mean something a little different – meeting Jesus in a non-physical way, and a community made up of people from every nation and culture. In this lecture we will see how Luke and Acts together achieve this transformation, and present a Jesus who meets everyone ‘today’, and how Jesus’ community breaks boundaries. Come and engage with what the bible says about conversion, response and the call to abandon our comfort for the sake of those that Jesus is saving – if you dare!
